    This programme reviews accepted best-practices for Enterprise Risk Management (ERM) in banking organisations and covers pivotal topics for chief risk officers in banking organisations today.

    Taking a top level and more strategic view on the risks the bank runs, the programme covers all key risk types – both financial and non-financial – and shows the integrated nature of these risks. It will also help to improve understanding and foster influence and effective collaboration among key stakeholders in the risk management process.

    Participants learn how to explain stakeholders’ complex concepts, including the definitions and measurements associated with various risks to which banks are exposed.
